really liked it

"All our life, so far as it has definite form, is but a mass of habits - practical, emotional, and intellectual - systematically organized for our weal or woe, and bearing us irresistibly toward our destiny, whatever the latter may be." - William James

I heard about this book watching CNN one day, and I was very excited to get my hands on a copy. The book discusses how habits are formed, why they are formed, and how to recognize habits and change them for the better. It talks about habits on an individual level, a business level, and a cultural or social level. I found the different discussions very interesting and the main concept of the book is very valid, noteworthy, and in some ways inspiring. There were a couple of times where I didn't want to know any more detail in the examples given, but overall the book was a great read - exactly the sort of discussion that gets you thinking. Thanks Charles Duhigg for putting this book together and that is How Lou Sees It.
